DETROIT -

A semitruck tipped over on the westbound entrance ramp to I-94 at eastbound I-96 Tuesday afternoon, causing some serious traffic tie-ups.

The driver somehow lost control at the interchange, causing the truck to flip onto its side. To make matters worse, the truck was hauling scrap metal and iron. The cargo was strewn all over the highway causing the roadway to be shut down for several hours.

There is no word on whether the driver will be ticketed.

Nobody was hurt in the incident.
